Ten programs that encourage leadership and economic empowerment for women have been awarded NSW Government funding in the latest round of Investing in Women grants.
Minister for Women Tanya Davies today announced the successful applicants, praising the new projects for the positive difference they will make to the lives of women across the state.
“We must continually look for different and innovative ways to help women achieve equality, such as in the workplace, as well as long-term financial security,” Mrs Davies said.
“Investing in Women grants have funded projects since 2013 that support the training, employment, and retention of women in traditionally male-dominated industries, and I am proud to endorse the latest round of successful applicants.”
The program offers grants of up to $25,000 per project for organisations that demonstrate practical and direct ways to engage and support women. More than $200,000 in funding was allocated in total.
